Renowned Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu rocked San Francisco last Saturday along with Grammy award-winning conductor Arnie Roth at the Distant Worlds concert.

It wouldn't be Distant Worlds without the music of Final Fantasy and it wouldn't the music of Final Fantasy without Spehiroth's theme from Final Fantasy VII, One Winged Angel. There have been many performances of this number over the years – nearly all of which you can catch on YouTube – but it never hurts to have one more, so here it is for your viewing pleasure. You might say it's over done, but really, if Uematsu digs it, why shouldn't you?


Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY is a world concert tour commemorating Final Fantasy's 20th anniversary. The tour kicked off in Sweden December 4, 2007. I'm not sure where the concert is heading after leaving Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, but here's hoping it wasn't the last we heard of Uematsu and Roth.
